in many ways of governor christie in new jersey, sort of metaphorically putting his arm around the president, telling him what a great president he was. last thing you would have expected say two weeks ago. what did you make of that? >> i thought it was a fair appraisal. look, governor christie and new jersey has a real problem. jersey shore devastated, plus all the electric outages and problems throughout a large part of the state. of course governor christie needs help. this is what happens when governors need help, they come to washington. and americans expect washington to help. there is a role for the commander in chief, for the president of the united states, when disaster strikes at home. that's what americans expect of their leader. >> were you pleased that the marathon was canceled? >> yeah. i think it was a smart move. i do. it's been -- new yorkers have been really terrific about this. people downtown in manhattan have been four days without light or power. the streets are dark. it's like sarajevo during the siege in the balkans and the thought of more people coming

of destruction crisscross. >> it was an amazing day yesterday between the president and governor christie in new jersey. >> oh, yes. >> no one quite gets or understands how this will play out. does this help romney? does it help the president? what are the polls showing? it has been a topsy-turvy few days, no one really knows. we'll know tuesday night. won't we? >> yes. >>> also ahead, heroes of the hurricanes, some of the neighbors helping neighbors with a new life on the line. >>> then, we'll lighten things up a little and show you some of the best celebrity halloween costumes "ifs and butts" that will make more sense. shortly. that will come up in "the skinny". >> people have a little idea what's going on. bring "the skinny" back after a few days of all storm news. that's good. of course we have got to stick with the sandy story and palpable signs of recovery in sandy's wake. power is being restored in what has been a very dark lower manhattan. and traffic lights in new york's financial district came back on yesterday afternoon. power to buildings is coming back a bit slower. one by one. stil
by this storm. >> yeah. i don't think we know all that's happened to the jersey shore yet. governor christie is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going
. my power knows no bounds. >> is that one of those governor chris christie fleece zip-ups. >> power to your house, nonexistent. that means darkness and candles and whining children. >> on "cbs this morning." >> people had no e-mail, facebook, twitter or instagram or as aol users put it, welcome to the party. >>> welcome to cbs this morning. as you wake up on the west coast, the remains of superstorm sandy are still being felt as far as wisconsin, but it's nothing like the damage here in the northeast. the death toll this morning is at least 57. 22 of them in new york city alone. >> around 6.8 million utility customers are still without power in 16 states and washington, d.c. in hard-hit lower manhattan, power will not be fully restored until the weekend at the earliest. however, financial markets reopened a few minutes ago, and most major airports are also opened. our correspondents are all along the east coast again this morning reporting on the impact of superstorm sandy. >> we begin with jeff glor along the jersey shore which bore the brunt of sandy's wind and rain. president oba
even had republicans, including the prominent republican chris christie, praising him for his efforts, so all around praise for the president. in reacting to this, he's able to look the part, and people seemed to react to what he was doing. >> well, let's talk about that reaction because we just learned that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor krit tee who has been such a supporter of romney and now barack obama. i mean he has been ee fusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way in praising president obama and then mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels. so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate chang
colleague, actually, governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> let's talk about that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where
significant damages. martha: we heard from governor christie, he is very concerned about the whole state. i know he is trying to get up into a helicopter to look at some of the damage. the wind are still too strong out there for that. rick what can you tell us about that whole area? martha: that was live shot from seaside heights, new jersey. go ahead, rick. >> the damages are widespread. mike come around this way. just to give people an idea how deep this stand is on this particular road. this along, like, you know, getting front-end loader in here to scoop the sand off the streets. this is just one block of one community. there are communities up and down the new jersey coastline just like this. they saw several feet of water. all the dunes were breeched. they have been washed away. that sand is up and down the streets here. look how bad this oceanfront hotel was torn up. the fencing is knocked down. we saw pieces of houses float by us last night. you see where some of the debris is coming from. there are fences gone. there are pools carried away and businesses are just really, really hit
. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >>> welcome back. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >> the election is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate w
. >> reporter: new jersey's governor, chris christie known for his brashness seemed himself moved by what he saw. >> as a kid who was -- born and raised in the state, who -- who spent a lot of time over my life at the jersey shore. no question in my mind we will rebuild it. >> reporter: in cape may, the very southern tip touch the shore, no major damage. but a landscape transformed. this is an 8-foot street sign. that is now, waist high. in berkeley, the scene was equally tragically bizarre. as we made our way north along the shore, we got a sense of how vast this recovery must be. even here in seaside heights, a drowned town now, haunted by its stranded and frightened residents, and the ghosts of so many summers past. >> surreal to see. and here in new york city, things are slowly, and we stress slowly, getting back to normal. crews are working throughout the night to restore power off to the 750,000 people that are still in the dark. >> and the work of pumping out subway and traffic tunnels under the city's rivers is making some progression. the subways do remain closed though. also, closed, l
christie to tour the damage such in the wake of the storm. the columnist of the national -- national review and executive director of public knows. i'm going to start with you. i watched the press conference with chris christie and the president. let me tell you, is chris christie the governor who was supporting mitt romney or not? , a little confused. >> well, remember that he is running for reelection in 2013 in new jersey, which has not voted for republican for president in over 20 years. so it's good politics for him, and, frankly, so far he is very pleased with of the federal government has been responding to his requests for aid and assistance. 62 percent of new jersey, i lived in new jersey, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down the line to governor christie. to you. you said that politicking never really ended. the conventional resta
with governor christie. let's see how the polls unfold in the next day or two. that's the critical moment when the last minute undecideds and there are still some out there will be making up their minds. >> all right, richard wolffe, david k. johnson, great to have you with us, thanks for joining us. >>> coming up, the state of the race with just four days to go. what the real numbers tell us, >>> coming up, a look at the state of the presidential race. we'll look at the latest numbers and we'll visit with bob shrum. nobody knows more than he does. at least that's what i say. then, more problems for ohio voters. hurricane sandy leaves thousands without power. and over 6,000 voters across the state purged from the rolls. how serious is this? we'll have the details. and paul ryan hasn't helped mitt romney a bit in wisconsin. now the congressman may have trouble hanging on to his own house seat. john nichols will join me with that. we'll be right back. >>> thanks for staying with us tonight. four days out, and the state of the race favors president obama. seriously. now if you look at it, it is n
destroyed. people we walks by the hundred, they looked dazed. one man came out the governor chris christie, and said, i lost everything, but i'm alive. he said he was grateful. to be alive. you know, a great pollute in bullet in terms of human life being destroyed was averteed. it will take months, but with winter approaching we need to moratorium aggressively to make sure that homes get fixed. gerri: congressman, you know, just explain to our viewers, this is gold coast in new jersey, expensive beautiful homes in this area. you know seaside, it is an area that is covetted by so many people, how long do you think i will take to bring it back? are you confident you will get support you need from state, and federal government challenge play a role -- federal government that will play a role. >> there is no doubt governor made it clear he is all in committed. and you know when it comes to the repair, you know congress has passed and i have supported, laws, including our fema legislation that to the best of our ability to tries to make whole. there is going to be needs for more loans for peopl
. wouldn't you know that governor chris christie, he is a little younger, he wants to go and he is announcing the rationing of gasoline. and they might say, what is the big deal. look at these lines. well, these are very long lines, just to get gasoline. the problem is they're out because they have no power and there is no way to access the gas. they might cut down by on an even distribution of this and for those of you, well, let's say, is new to you. for those of you that are in within a century, this is akin to a we did in the back luncheon last energy crisis. on and the crisis before that in 1973. that is why this is such a big deal. that is why this is so bad. that is why this is not some fleeting event. they are already making arrangements like this in one of the most population heavy states. new york will probably consider to do the same in short order. all of these utilities are down. power is coming back at a glacial pace. james o'neill says providing the help and the resources to get these utilities back online. is that correct? >> yes, sir, we are the largest contract
, and it has been what has been so exasperated for governor chris christie who had been warning people along these areas, even those so-called west of the so-called safe side of the east side, the bay area, just go ahead and move much further and land and get back out. many did not. they felt that they were not directly on the ocean and would not be affected. obviously, like a rising tub of water it again, the water base rises whether you're on the bayside, the oceanside, or in between, you are flooded. that is the situation right now in the garden state which is more like a swamp state. ken feinberg to sort of did a gauge of the financial impact of all of this. the mesquite's messier, wind year, louder, we are on edge. because it is all about you. ♪ 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based onhis chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. viously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a difference ? look at verizon. it's so much more than the other ones. so what if we just changed the format alto
-coaster in the ocean now. before-and-after pictures of seaside heights. governor chris christie toured the area. he described the damage as unthinkable. >> literally the boardwalk at seaside heights is washed into the ocean. i saw a roller-coaster and a log flume sitting in the ocean today. what's happened to the jersey shore is just incalcuable and it will take a long, long time to rebuild. jon: we have live team fox coverage now. janice dean in the fox weather center for us. let's start with rick leventhal in man necessary sqaun -- manasquan new jersey. this week it took a devastating direct hit from hurricane sandy. the mile long boardwalk, really asphalt behind me, it has been shredded the steel bulkhead you can probably make out in the sand hasn't been exposed for 50 years. now all the sand chewed away left it bare. as you look at homes that line the atlantic ocean, million dollar plus homes have in many cases heavily damaged and destroyed. some are pushed off the foundation. we can smell the gas fumes in the air. the town has been closed. no one is being allowed in, including residents. only
christie said this week. obama governs from the center. you contrast that to everything dr. patterson was saying, how this guy has campaigned when he needed the social conservatives to get the primary -- to get the nomination, he catered to every single right wing wing nut policy position like he was running for the president of the john burch society. the idea he would not be a marionette is betrayed by the facts of the campaign. >> the wonderful character of willard mitt romney. julian, dana -- sorry, that's wrong, julian, michelle, cottle, and professor james peterson, thank you so much. and if you can't get enough, we have got a special election edition live from democracy plaza at 30 rock tomorrow, saturday night, at 7:00 p.m. so please do join us. next, if you can't keep them from the polls, keep them from casting their vote. stay with us. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh! [ male announcer ] taste it and desc
this year. >> well, the images of the president and chris christie have been everywhere. of course, christie has been very outspoken as the rnc keynote speaker. he describes obama as, quote, blindly walking around the white house looking for a clue. i think there was a bit of a love fest between him and the president yesterday. let me play some of that. >> we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. >> at the top of my list, i have to say governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure the state got out in front of this incredible storm. i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. >> molly, that seems to be the very picture of bipartisanship, something we haven't seen very much of. to dana's poibnt, i don't want o suggest there's a po
, chris christie has said don't be stupid, get out now and saying the coastal areas, many have indicate need are st the ultimate in selfish and stupid acts from the governor of new jersey who is saying that obligates personnel to come to their rescue and risk their lives. now, janice dean, what are we seeing? >> it is moving quicker and now we will see advisories every hour. and i expect landfall in the next hour or so, so, maybe during the slow and well bring you the latest. we have a new traffic before 5:00 p.m., but still moving quickly at 28 miles per hour to the northwest so it will make a quicker landfall than expected. 55 miles per hour southeast of cape may and the barometer is, really, unheard of, 940 millibars for the strongest hurricane ever to move into the region. and still 90 miles per hour hurricane. there is the satellite imagery and the center is right there, east of cape may, we think the center will come on shore in the next hour or so, with landfall in the 5:00 p.m. hour as a category one hurricane and the north side of the storm is what will pile up all the water, t
the way that governor christie embraced him this week, mayor bloomberg's endorsement, the magazine endorsement and then the jobs number today i think sealed the deal. i think it's the critical piece. as we respond as a country to a natural disaster to a crisis situation, we realize ultimately that we really are in this together. we can't go it alone. we need each other. we are brothers keepers, our sisters keeper. >> alicia, do you think in times to come we will say this is the week that decided the election? >> i think he came in this week as a very favorable position and it's as good as it gets. listen, we knew that the closing arguments would be very much the same as the opening argument, to go back to the economy. we hear obama making a case for his last four years, for his economic steward ship and we knew that we'd see romney making the complete opposite case, saying that the policies failed. the good news for the president is that these job numbers really reinforce the narrative that we're headed in the right direction. >> so you don't accept romney's attack on the job numbe
look at this and i see the news this week with romney's top surrogate, chris christie effusively praising obama's leadership. now this afternoon we have news that michael bloomberg who previously said he was not going to endorse in the presidential race has decided to endorse sandy as a reason for doing this. you know, tough to say, but it seems to me there's got to be some political upside in this for obama in terms of the election on tuesday. >> i think you're right. it might be marginal, but, you know, my analysis and i think it's probably yours, i think it's what the data shows is that romney needed one more little push to get over the edge in these closing days. if you look at the electoral map and polling, yes, it's close enough, yes, the ground game may determine what happens, but it seems to me in my analysis romney needed a little bit of a push, and he's definitely not getting a little bit of a push. if anything, i think there's a marginal benefit for the president in these last few days. now, i hate for the election to be decided by last-minute theatrics and a freak of
buildings and stranded many motorists. new jersey's governor, chris christie, weighing in on the damage earlier today. >> i will first say to all of you, especially those out there facing loss, devastation, and heartbreaking reality your home may be gone, we're with you. we have a long road ahead of us but i have complete confidence we're going to come out of this better and stronger than before. this state is too tough to give into this type of devastation. jenna: we're still getting a look at some of that devastation in new jersey. across the river in new york city, much of lower manhattan was plunged into darkness as the storm closed in on the city last night. it hurled a record-breaking 13 foot storm surge into the southern tip of the island right where jon was standing yesterday. we'll show you his shot yesterday in a little bit to show you exactly what this looked like. basically in lower manhattan the world's financial capital, was submerged and water was sent pouring into the subway system which is not operating today. as cleanup efforts get underway the national guard is headed
a dozen flights of stairs to get them out. president obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured damaged areas of new jersey yesterday. the two put political differences aside to do what is right for victims of superstorm sandy. they walked through one of the hardest hit neighborhoods and visited a shelter. the federal communications you're going to be ok. he sprang into action immediately to help get us those things. it has been a great working relationship. >> president obama said his top priority is to get car restored. the federal communications commission says wireless service is improving in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. but serious outages remain in hard-hit areas like new jersey and new york. where cell phone users crowded around power strips yesterday to charge their phones. sandy's blow to mobile phone sites from virgina to massachusetts gives fresh impetus for federal requirements that wireless networks have backup power systems. phone companies went to court and blocked backup power rules proposed after hurricane katrina. a fomer f-c-c executive tells bloomberg
